In 2019, Swiss watch brand Louis Erard relaunched its iconic Excellence Regulator watch, redesigned by Eric Giroud. This redesigned collection features three limited edition models.
With its unusual time display – the hours and seconds are off-centre – the Excellence Regulator has established the success of Louis Erard. In the re-designed edition, the 42-mm diameter stainless steel/ black PVD coated stainless steel case houses a Sellita SW200 self-winding mechanical movement with Dubois Dépraz complication.
The dial, available in an intense black, night blue or ivory white, displays the hours on a counter at 12 o’clock, the minutes on a central hand, the seconds on a second counter at 6 o’clock and the date at 3 o’clock. The leather strap matches the dials (black, blue, cognac) and is fitted with a folding clasp.
Stamped Swiss Made, these three new models are available in a limited edition of 178 each, from the brand’s approved dealers.
Self-winding regulating calendar mechanism with date, Sellita SW200 calibre with Dubois Depraz 14072 complication. Enhanced version of the movement, Ø25.60 mm, height 4.60 mm, 26 jewels, 28’800 VpH (4Hz). Around 38 hours of power reserve.
